Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KatieKate Attractive and functional
I really like how this tile brings a bit of the outdoors into my home. It has a very natural look and feel, but is not too rough on my bare feet. I am confident that my kids won't slip on the tile when it's wet.
Regarding installation, it has a rather rough surface, so have plenty of damp rags available for cleaning up thin set and grout.

Pleasantly surprised with this tile. It was chosen for an outdoor balcony (over NobelDeck membrane), so the texture is perfect. It provides traction even when wet or damp with morning dew.
The quality was good. Tiles were well-sized, no excessive deviations from one tile to another. No pillowing. Waffle back, so I recommend back-buttering.
There is enough variation in color where the colors of the floor blend well. Tile cuts easily on the wet saw, no cracking, etc.
The previous poster gave the tile one star rating due to how difficult it was to grout. That's to be expected if installing grout with a grout float on a textured tile. I used charcoal grout and used a grout bag to grout the tile. Easy easy easy. Pipe the grout in the lines, let the grout set up, then tool. Excess grout BRUSHES off the tile. Clean joints, no smearing of grout. Works like a charm.
I bought the tile on sale, so I consider it to be an excellent value, very easy to install, and good looking. And again, the texture provides for excellent safety in an outdoor/wet installation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by arw1115 Heavy texture makes grout installation a nightmare
This tile has a very rough texture to it. I thought that would be great for the mudroom / laundry room to keep people from slipping around in bare feet. I did not factor in how hard installing grout would be with such a heavy texture. 24 hours later I am STILL scrubbing dried grout of the nooks and crannies. I do love the look of the tile, it has black flecks and glittery silver flecks mixed in with the charcoal. With six boxes ordered, about 10 tiles had the tiniest little chips in the corner. I just made sure to use them along the wall where trim would cover the chip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dino This tile is amazing
Absolutely gorgeous tile. It was very easy to cut with my wet saw and the tiles were very consistent. This tile has a lot of texture so when grouting if you use a float clean it right away. If you wait 20 mins for it to haze you will regret it like the rookie who wrote the bad review. Come on guy... I remember my first tile job and I didn't blame the materials for my results haha. Really great product and worth every dime.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandy07010 The same quality and MUCH less expensive
I saw this Marazzi tile in a local tile store and again online. When I "shopped" it online, I found the same tile (slightly different name but same mfr.) at Home Depot. The other outlet would have charged me $249 for delivery just to get it to the curb of my building (almost as much as the tile). There was no delivery charge from HD. I wound up paying about 35% (delivered to the door) as I would have with the other online vendor, and it's exactly the same product. And the shippers (Estes) were great about working out a delivery time when I would be home to receive it. And no tiles arrived broken.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuffaloBuyer Beautiful, High Quality Tile
Used these tiles in a subway pattern with a charcoal gray grout for a bathroom floor remodel. They look beautiful! Tiles are coarse, providing excellent traction when wet. They also have a glittery shimmer to them which enhances their natural appearance. Tiles were well packaged for delivery - none of them were broken. I'd absolutely use them again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adw1234 Love them, but be careful when grouting...
Love the texture, love the look, love the shape and love the color!! Couldn't be happier with these tiles! But I do wish I was warned about taking care when grouting tiles with this much texture. I spent about 1 day installing my tiles and then 5 days cleaning the grout out from all of the little textured grooves within the tiles. Looking back I should have grouted a LOT slower and kept a brush with me to carefully clean the grout off the tile as I went along. So take your time cleaning up the grout off the tile before its too late!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMG211 Great non-slip tile for front porch
We finally have a non-slip front porch that looks great. It was applied over the old smooth cement front porch that was very slippery when wet. We love the neutral color (a muted gray green) that looks good next to our brick planter.
